Tammy Jackson Weeklly Women's Volleyball Diary

Oct. 4, 2005

Bruin setter Tammy Jackson will submit a weekly web diary for the remainder of the 2005 UCLA women's volleyball season. The junior from Poway, Calif., played a critical role in UCLA's 2004 season, stepping in for three matches in mid-October. Jackson will provide weekly insight into the Bruins season with this web journal.

Hello and welcome to the 2005 UCLA Women's Volleyball Online Journal.

My name is Tammy Jackson and I will be attempting to narrate for you the whirlwind journey that is a season of NCAA Volleyball! Once a week I will be sharing with you tidbits from the team's adventures that week - updates, highlights, stories and other good stuff. So thanks for joining us, we hope that you enjoy our chronicle as much as we enjoy living it.

This Friday was one of the most anticipated games of the year USC at home. A combination of the rivalry and beginning of school brought 2,777 boisterous fans to the game, and though the game did not go our way, the support we received was emotive. The men's volleyball team dressed up and cheered the whole time, along with many other teams such as baseball, softball, and women's and men's basketball and water polo.

After four weekends of being on the road, the team was so glad to finally have a home game with our own friends, family and fans in attendance.

On Saturday and Sunday we attempted to return the support by attending the men's water polo, football and soccer games. All three teams came up with victories and we were glad to finally be in town and have the chance to cheer them on.

Earlier in the week we had a very special Birthday. On Tuesday our own Colby Lyman turned 21 and was surprised in practice by a Dancing Telegram that her family sent with love. We were all shocked when a shaggy man dressed in a pink tuxedo with a huge balloon bouquet came into practice yelling "Hey yo! Where's Colby?" Practice ended with everyone dancing to the "YMCA" while a few confused onlookers watched from the windows above the practice gym.

This weekend we take on the Oregon schools. We hope that you can catch one of the games (7 pm on Friday and Saturday nights in Pauley Pavilion) but if not, we still like you :)

Until next time all the best.
